long war we launched after 9/11 has been ended in iraq. and all of those variables factor into decisions about how we mark this day as americans. but also how our leaders or our would be leaders mark it. how we commemorate 9/11 is a work in progress. we saw today a decision by the white house and the obama campaign to have vice president joe biden mark the day in a way that was not political. it was just about remembering the people who were lost that day and commemorating the sacrifices people have made in this country because of 9/11. while both sides in the presidential campaign suspended their negative ads for the day out of respect for the anniversary, there's no ban on campaigning today. there's no rule about what you can and cannot do. mitt romney gave a speech today before the national guard association in reno, nevada, and at times it sounded like his normal stump speech. he did go out of his way to attack president obama for defense cuts that are part of the sequester deal. which incidentally, are cuts that paul ryan voted for in congress. that's the kind of thin

today noticed since that speech, more than 900 soldiers have died in iraq. >> so that was this date in the campaign in 2004. this date in the campaign in 2008, even though we were right in the middle of the meltdown of the financial sector, still at the center of the campaign in 2008, at the first debate between john mccain and barack obama, which was this date four years ago, the focus was the war. in fact, both wars. >> do you, senator mccain, much has been said about the lessons of vietnam. what do you see as the lessons of iraq? >> i think the lessons of iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy. thanks to this great general david pa trm pa tray yous, they succeeding and winning in iraq. >> whether we should have gone into the war in the first place. six years ago i stood up and opposed this war. we hadn't finished the job in afghanistan. we hadn't caught bin laden. we hadn't put al qaeda to rest. and as a consequence, i thought that it was going to be a distraction. now, senator mccain and president bush had a very different judgment. >> so that was this date,
iosamabin laden is gone. he also said we'd end the war in iraq responsibly. we've done that. he has protected civilians in libya, and qaddafi is gone. i serve up at the united nations, and i see every day the difference in how countries around the world view the united states. they view us as a partner. they view us as somebody they want to work with. they view president obama as somebody they trust. our standing in the world is much stronger so it charge of weakness is really quite baseless. >> schieffer: do you think mitt romney spoke inappropriately when he criticized and issued a statement so early in this turmoil? >> bob, i think you know, in my role, i'm not going to jump into politics and make those judgments. that's for the american people to decide. >> schieffer: madam ambassador thank you for being with us. >> thank you very much. >> schieffer: and joining us now for his take on all this, the ranking republican on the senate armed services committee, john mccain. senator, you've got to help me out here. the president of libya says that this was something that had been in t
influenced the regime in iraq and prepared to shed a lot of syrian blood to stay in power. they finance hezbollah and hamas in gaza strip and worse of all they continue to build a broad and nuclear weapons program. what is unmistakable despite the blurs ter that is coming from the obama administration, they are not afraid of the united states. they do not fear this president. they do not fear the united states. they do not fear consequences for their actions. as long as that belief holds true in tehran they will continue to support terrorists and build a nuclear weapons program. >> greta: a u.s. senator once said to me while i was lamenting there were so many problems across the world, he said to me we can't solve the problems, we can only manage them. that should be our goal in light of the fact so many variables. are we managing these different hot spots around the world and give him a good grade at managing them? >> no. i don't agree with the premise we can't solve problems. that is very european view of the world. i think americans are problem solving people. i think that is what we

and well in the middle east including a resurgance in iraq and they are there in libya and this is a terrorist attack and they were foolish to deny it to start with. >> so how would you characterize the moment in our foreign policy? >> a moment of glaring weakness and chickens are coming home to roost. very briefly could i tell you in iraq it is unraveling. they just convicted the president to death penalty. al-qaida is resurgance. the relations between the three different enities sunni and shia and kurds is breaking down. iran is influence is increasing and iranian planes is flying over iraq to syria with arms for assad as we speak. in afghanistan we have had to adopt a policy and not training with the afghan troops, thoo moons they will not be ready to take over the responsibilitis and frankly they never were and so we have to evaluate our whole situation. the attack on the base in kandahar was the most offensive. we lost 200 million worth of airplanes in the death and tragic death of two marines and in syria, the massacre goes on. and finally in iran we continue on t
is well and thriving in some places including iraq, including in syria where there's more and more of those kinds of people coming in, including mali and including other parts of the middle east. and it's just disgraceful that we would say that an attack such as this on space was a result of a demonstration. >> disgraceful is a strong word to use, senator. you've never shied away from using strong words. >> i never have. >> how can you say that you know -- >> how can you say when there's an attack with mortars and heavy weapons. >> is libya awash -- >> anybody who understands warfare, anybody who has the fundamental understanding of warfare knows that that's not a spontaneous demonstration. that's how, nora. >> as you know -- is libya awash with weapons? >> yes, it is. >> what susan wright said over a number of the shows over the weekend that i know you criticized. >> i was on just after her so i know what she said she said they had no evidence that it was a spontaneous demonstration. how can you say that when mortar and heavy weapons are used and it's a result of a spontaneous dem

reason i am standing here tonight. because in the faces of those young veterans who come back from iraq and afghanistan, i see my grandfather, who signed up after pearl harbor, marched in patton's army, and was rewarded by a grateful nation with the chance to go to college on the gi bill. in the face of that young student who sleeps just three hours before working the night shift, i think about my mom, who raised my sister and me on her own while she worked and earned her degree; who once turned to food stamps but was still able to send us to the best schools in the country with the help of student loans and scholarships. when i listen to another worker tell me that his factory has shut down, i remember all those men and women on the south side of chicago who i stood by and fought for two decades ago after the local steel plant closed. and when i hear a woman talk about the difficulties of starting her own business, i think about my grandmother, who worked her way up from the secretarial pool to middle-management, despite years of being passed over for promotions because she was a woman

are failing in iraq. the iranian planes are flying over iraq to deliver arms to bashar al-assad and al qaeda is on the resurgence. in afghanistan we just saw the greatest single attack as far as money is concerned in our base where we lost some $200 million worth of aircraft. we have canceled training and operations with afghans because we don't trust them because of this killing by afghans of americans in uniform. by the way, this was a very, very professional attack they made on the base in afghanistan. in iran, the iranians do not think we are serious. we just criticize israel and tell israel they should not attack iran. in syria, 25,000 people have been massacred and the president of the united states doesn't even speak on their behalf. they believe that america is weak and we are withdrawing. that is what it is all about. >>neil: with the more violence the more the folks are inclined to say, to hell with him. i had ron paul on a couple of days ago and i mentioned to him, you thought it was a good idea to encourage the moderates throughout the middle east, particularly places like libya
